The Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board has dismissed three cohorts of students from two schools after receiving notification of confirmed cases of COVID 19.

Two cohorts of students were dismissed from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Elementary School. The total number of students dismissed was 41.

One cohort of 26 students was dismissed from St. Joseph Catholic Elementary School in River Canard.

The board says they learned of these confirmed cases Sunday afternoon and have notified the affected students that they are not to attend school on Monday.

“We have been working with the health unit by providing lists of students and staff who may have been directly affected.The health unit is contacting any individuals, both students and staff, who may have been affected, and will give directions for them to follow,” said Stephen Fields, Communications Coordinator for the board.

Fields says a  voice message to the both school communities was sent home this Sunday evening to reassure parents that if they have not been contacted by the health unit, they have not been identified as close contacts and their children may continue attending school as usual. Follow-up letters will be sent home with students when they are dismissed from school tomorrow.
